Respite for Shiney, case adjourned

Respite for Shiney, case adjourned


Ahuja’s lawyer Shrikant Shivade sought for copies of the forensic reports of the actor and the victim, on which the prosecution is relying upon in the trial against the actor.
“While the victim’s DNA report is positive and some male DNA is found, Ahuja’s DNA report is negative. I would need to peruse the forensic lab reports to argue my case,” said the lawyer.

“One of vaginal swabs of the victim is missing and the DNA report of the actor and victim can be tampered by the police,” defence lawyer Shrikant Shivade alleged.
Shiney Ahuja, who is lodged at the Arthur Road prison in central Mumbai, was arrested on June 15 for allegedly raping his domestic maid at his residence.
The actor has approached the Bombay High Court seeking bail after the sessions court rejected his bail plea on September 11 after observing that there was prima facie case against him.

Additional Sessions judge S R Trivedi will pass an order on the application on September 25.
Ahuja, clad in a grey shirt and blue jeans, was seen talking to his wife and parents during the court proceedings.

Shivade further sought for the court to summon the director of the Forensic lab directing him to bring the reports in a sealed cover.
